Here are a couple of pictures of the tank today. I am terrible at taking pictures of fish tanks and these are not very good. the fish are blurry because I was trying to get brighter pictures by taking a longer exposure.

filter system

Postby pikayooperdave » Wed Feb 15, 2012 10:20 pm

the mag 950 foam prefilter picks up alot of stuff. I just squeeze/rinse that periodically. This keeps the canisters cleaner (there are 2 eheim ecco's, the intakes/outlets are hidden in compartments behind the back wall). The canisters are ready to be cleaned maybe every 3 months or so? Not bad considering the number of messy fish in there. The under gravel jets also keep the substrate clean - this makes the tank fairly low maintenance.

I updated with some of that info but I made a double post - the first one is at the bottom of the first page of the thread which probably made it easy to miss :)

Thanks 123!

I am about to start work on another similar tank, but the background is going to be made from dead marine live rock. I will be starting a thread as the project gets underway.

no problem in the U.S. I checked my local supplier, costs 6$ a kg, thats 3$/lbs, so if i need a 30kg mactan "lace" rock, it will cost me 180$ and will cost me 15-20 times that price if i order it from U.S LOL
